Thursday

Q and daddy at the park.
I have Valérie to thank for these sweet linen sarouel shorts from l'atelier de marie et rose-alice.

Oh, this face? Just something that crossed my mind...a little wistfulness, a little....
(sound of screeching tires)
Wait just one cotton pickin' minute.
I don't want her to fool you. There is nothing, repeat nothing artless about this face. This is pure artifice, pure feminine wile. Tomboy that she is (and she has not let up at all on that front) she is not unaware of her effect on those around her, nor is she above using her power just because she can. Once again, I pity those who will undoubtedly fall in the wake of her charm in the future.

Oh, I love the winsome expression, but the OUTFIT that matches the dog is priceless. Artifice or happy accident?

Oh and she uses her weapons well against her helpless Daddy. You two are going to be the death of that poor man! LOL

Oh dear God, the men in her life are going to be powerless! Especially her dad (I know the feeling - 2 times over).

What an expression! She certainly is already the eye catcher. I so love the new title section of your blog- really beautiful.
